Broadsword quiz: Which warships? Which missiles?




For Broadsword's quiz-loving readers... which warships are these? And which missiles are they firing? The photos are from the Indian Navy's recently concluded Tropex Exercise.


NOBODY HAS CORRECTLY IDENTIFIED BOTH THE WARSHIPS AND BOTH THE MISSILES. THE CORRECT ANSWER IS: 

(A)  INS TABAR, LAUNCHING A KLUB SURFACE-TO-SURFACE MISSILE.

(B)  INS KULISH, LAUNCHING A Kh-35 URAN SURFACE-TO-SURFACE MISSILE

ALL THE GOLD STARS REMAIN SAFELY IN MY KITTY!!

First photo F-45INS Teg fires a Brahmos.

Second photo P-63 INS Kulish fires a SS-N-25 Switchblade SSM missile

Too easy -
Kivak III probably INS Teg firing a brahmos missile. Then you have a Type 25A firing a Kh35 Uran missile.

Cujo

The first one is a Barak interceptor missile and the second photo is of a Brahmos firing from a ship. Very difficult as a non defence personnel to tell which vesels these missiles got fired from.

First one is a Talwar class, did they integrate Brahmmos on this?
Second Bramhaputra with a club class?
